The Bluesmobile

We’re putting the band back together

Event Team Assembled

business event team back together

Jake, Elwood and the Hashtag Event Team

It seems like almost a lifetime since we were regularly on the road around the British Isles week in and week out. After the dreadful pandemic and almost 2 years sitting being a screen warrior running virtual events and online marketing, we finally got ourselves outdoors, met some real people and managed to run three awesome events in the Autumn of 2021.

All went smoothly and after making the decision to accelerate our return to live events we got busy preparing for 2022.

That’s not just finding venues and planning the events it’s also the vital event team that works behind the scenes and front of the house on event days to make it all go smoothly for our sponsors, our exhibitors, the speakers and our delegates.

I’m personally absolutely thrilled that we are officially back “in the studio” as a band and raring to go for 2022. All the key members of the team are on board and ready to jump in the bluesmobile to hit a town near you and can’t wait to see you all.

The event team for ’22 is now confirmed as Geoff on Saxophone and Social Media, Will on Bass and Logistics and Lousie and Rachel on Trumpet and Horn as well as making the front of house run like clockwork. We’re joined by Muhammad in the back office and conducting the flow of information and yours truly on lead vocals and anything else we need to be done. If you want to find out more why not follow me on LinkedIn and keep up to date with what’s going on and check out the event calendar to find a business event near to you and come and say hello to the team, we’d love to see you.

Business event calendar released

Well after a busy festive period planning and preparing for what we optimistically hoped would be a near-normal business event season we are delighted to announce that our first provisional calendar is released.

Featuring 13 confirmed shows across the United Kingdom and Ireland we’re thrilled to be returning to many existing venues and adding some new ones too. Back as regular fixtures are our events in Glasgow where we host the Expo Scotland Business Show twice a year at the fabulous C7 Conference Centre in Port Dundas. A handy 10-minute walk from the city centre and just a couple of minutes from the motorway we’ll be back in May and November for the 22nd and 23rd running of our oldest event.

May and November see us returning to our old home for Chester Business Show once more after interruptions during the pandemic and an enforced switch to another venue in 2021. We’ll be at the Crowne Plaza in Chester City Centre for this ever-popular gathering.

We will be returning to The Stables Country Club in Bury for Expo North West Business Show and to The Inchyra Hotel and Spa in Falkirk for the Forth Valley Business Show.

New for ’22 include first but long overdue visits to Stoke and Belfast as well as excursions further North into Scotland to Dundee and Inverness. We’ll be across the Irish Sea twice with the Social Media and Marketing Show heading to Belfast in April and the Belfast Business Show making its’ debut in November. The season is completed by trips to Warrington and to Walsall where we visit the stadiums that play host to the Wolves and the Saddlers respectively.

We’ll be publishing more details on each of the shows in the coming weeks so keep an eye out and make sure you book your complimentary business event tickets and come along to see us.
